Best friends since 1st grade, sharing the groove one beat at a time. Sneezy brings the funk and soul from Chicago! Sneezy’s sound is the perfect culmination of all things good in music. It fuses the genres of pop, reggae, hip-hop, and rock, and it has a natural, summery sunshine feel to every track. Their neo-soul undertone provides a little something extra to their music and creates an infectious, addicting rhythm that you’ll be glad to have stuck in your head. Like James Brown, Sneezy turns in a killer show and leaves it all on the stage, every time. Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, Sneezy’s catchy, cascading rhythms spiral onwards, leading scores of carousing fans dancing & singing along with songs they know by heart. From frontman Brett O’Connor: “We’re always having fun on stage, and you really get our music when you see us live. Our mission is to create an ever-growing community through our music.”


The event is finished.
